Library Student Page Book Reviews - For Teens By Teens
Hello! My name’s Kate, I’m 16 years old. I’m a Student Page at the L.E Shore Memorial Library, and today I’m writing a book review for The Wrath and The Dawn by Renée Ahdieh.
The Wrath and The Dawn is a young-adult novel by Renée Ahdieh, and it is a retelling of Arabian Nights. The story is about Shahrzad, a teenage girl who volunteers to marry a caliph named Khalid. Shahrzad does this with plans of revenge because she knows that he takes a new bride each night only to have them executed at sunrise. Throughout the book, Shahrzad finds herself falling in love with the caliph, and her plans of revenge slowly drift away...
I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking for an entertaining read that is easy to get into. The descriptive writing in this book really makes you feel like you are there in the pages, and the depth of the characters and their motives will keep you interested.
